Erg Chebbi Dunes represent the unique and true Saharan Erg of Morocco, a spectacular huge dune sea of wind-blown sand, normally characteristic of Algerian Sahara. Its charming dunes change colour all day long, from rose to gold and then to red shades. This is the best place in Morocco where you can appreciate the clearness of the sky and of the desert.
